Colonel Gaddafi's youngest son is not dead... according to Libyan state television which shows him safe and well - 10th Aug 2011

Colonel Gaddafi's youngest son has not been killed by the rebels, according to Libyan state television, which has shown footage of him looking safe and well.

Khamis Gaddafi, the youngest of seven of the Libyan ruler's sons, had been thought to have been fatally wounded in a NATO air stroke attack near Zlitan last week - news that boosted the morale of the anti-regime supporters.
